TEWKESBURY

SO8932 HIGH STREET
859-1/6/247 (East side)
27/07/73 No.119

GV II

House at end of row, with shop. Early C19. Flemish bond
brickwork, painted to the quadrant corner, slate roof, brick
stack. A narrow-frontage property with a long return to
Trinity Street.
3 storeys and basement, 1-windowed. 12-pane sashes to brick
voussoirs, stone cills. C19 plate-glass pilaster shop front,
with flat corner splay under the curved quadrant in the wall
above, and returning in 2 bays to Trinity Street; the
pilasters and fascia are concealed by late C20 work. Glazed
door under shallow transom-light to the left, on one stone
step. The coped parapet returns, left, to the first stack, and
continues over the 2-window range to the right, concealing the
hipped roof, with 2 large stacks on the party wall. Here are
wide-spaced 12-pane sashes, and, central to the ground floor,
a 2-panel C19 door in thin fluted doorcase, with an open
moulded wood pediment over a painted-over fanlight.
This is a modest late building, but it holds an important
position at the opening to Trinity Street, framing the view to
the front of Trinity Church (qv); the neat quadrant corner is
characteristic of the C19, and was probably reflected in the
glazing to the shop front in the original design. The C19
cast-iron Trinity Street sign remains on the wall at
first-floor level. INTERIOR not inspected.
